We are extremely excited to announce we will officially be opening our lazy river on Friday, July 18!
Our new 1,005-foot lazy river winds its way through the acclaimed Houston area resort’s Forest Oasis Waterscape™ surrounded by lush natural foliage and plenty of opportunity to be splashed. As riders enter the river, a majestic mosaic by Houston artist Denise Liebl greets them. The beauty of Herons, Egrets, Kingfishers and other wildlife found in the uninterrupted waterways of The Woodlands is unveiled to riders as they drift amid the serene setting. Guests may also stop during their trip along the lazy river to get out and enjoy a refreshing ride down the resort’s new plunge slide, landing in the lazy lagoon pool.
The new lazy river adds to the oasis of fun at our resort, which includes favorites such as two-story spiraling double water slides, lagoon-style pools, waterfalls, underwater music and murals and Puffy’s Sprayground™, a synchronized water experience with waterspouts and fountains.
“The addition of the lazy river truly makes our Forest Oasis Waterscape one of the ultimate water experiences of any resort in the nation,” said Greg Parsons, General Manager and Vice President of Hospitality for The Woodlands Resort. “Whether guests are looking to enjoy the thrills of racing down our 30-foot waterslides, playing with their little ones in our sprayground or floating their cares away in our new Lazy River, a fun, relaxing and refreshing experience is available for all!”
The addition of the new lazy river is part of The Woodlands Resort’s $60-million expansion and renovation, which also includes the opening of a new guest room wing and high-end steak house and updating of the property’s 60,000 square-foot conference center. The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center is owned by a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Howard Hughes Corporation (NYSE: HHC).
If you want to experience the new lazy river and one of “America’s Most Family Friendly Resorts” as recently named by Fox News, you are invited to make a reservation at The Woodlands Resort by calling 866-361-5674 or by booking via the resort’s website at www.woodlandsresort.com.
